New Students

Spring 2025 Arrivals

Welcome new Midyear students!

We are so excited that you will be joining us in January!

Midyear undergraduate students (first year and transfer) will move onto campus a few days before classes begin on January 14, 2025. Exact dates for move-in and Orientation will be added once they are finalized.

Keep an eye out for emails from the Department of Orientation and First Year Experience later this spring, as well as during the summer and fall, regarding some virtual opportunities to meet each other, as well as some of our Midyear Ambassadors. In the meantime, you can feel free to reach out to our Midyear Ambassadors with any questions you have about Brandeis or their experience as Midyear students. As soon as you have been accepted to Brandeis, our Midyear Ambassadors are here for you!

Looking to learn more about possible jobs/internships before you begin at Brandeis? Visit our Hiatt Career Center.
